New synthetic methods to attain high structural and functional complexity

Description and applications

Development of new synthetic methods to attain high structural and functional complexity. These methods lie within the areas of organocatalysis, transition metal catalysis and, more recently, bio-hybrid catalysis. In addition to that, we are also interested in developing new drug-delivery devices by combining acoustics and microfluidics.

We can potentially provide interesting molecular scaffolds with a wide array of applications.
